Josh Babcock is a multidisciplinary visual artist and musician, recording electronic music under the moniker “The Oceanographer”. For Art S.E.A.L.S., sounds were captured throughout the Hamilton Farmers’ Market with a handheld audio recorder and mixed live in the market. In Windsor, the sound station was re-created at the Windsor Public Library to create a soundtrack that incorporates the recordings from Hamilton. Listen to the final track here.
